Omnivore - Confused about Straits

In this week's Grazing column I mentioned the April 25 opening of Straits in the building last occupied by Spice on Courtland Street in Midtown. Apparently, I received incorrect information about the location of the Straits of Malacca. This is from Rich Sussman:

Cliff, As a former Peace Corps Volunteer who taught school in Batu Pahat, Johor, Malaysia for 2.5 years, I wish to correct the location of the Straits of Malacca as mentioned in your Grazing column this week.. The Straits of Malacca separate Malaysia from Indonesia (mainly Sumatra). TheStraits of Johor separate Malaysia from Singapore (access over a causeway).Batu Pahat is located about 8km. from Minyak Beku (on the Straits of Malacca) and about 150km from Singapore. Probably more than you wanted toknow, but, why not?

Thanks to Rich. I can never know enough about Malaysian geography.
